Ran Windows 10 1803 update. Microphone worked before, but not after. Headphones still work. Using Microsoft LX-3000 headset.

Multiple organizations are seeing the same issue. This is still an issue.

Same problem. I've updated one PC and one Dell Notebook. Both with the problem only in the microphone. I had notice that if you enable the resource to hear your microphone (you listen yourself), LX-3000 works. But this is not an resolution.

I experienced the same problem after Windows 10 update. I am on a Lenovo workstation. Trying to use the Lifechat LX-3000 to record voiceover on Techsmith Snagit 18. Techsmith advised that I upgrade to Snagit 19, which I did, but the issue was not resolved. I was told that the driver needed to be updated but there is no driver available for this unit for Windows 10.
I happened upon this fix for myself purely by accident.
I decided to find out which programs were affected by this lack of audio. I have Camtasia 2018 and tried a screen recording and noticed that the audio was turned way down, so I adjusted it back up to 100%. I did a recording and everything was recording properly.
I went back to Snagit 19 and tried a screen capture recording and the audio was also miraculously fixed.
I also use this same headset for Dragon Naturally Speaking (version 13). When I used the Dragon program, the audio for the other programs (Camtasia and Snagit) reverted back to no audio. Again, I went back into Camtasia to readjust the audio input levels and it was fixed.
I am not a tech person so I don't know why it worked or even how it worked... but it is working. Not the most elegant fix but at least, the headset is working in a roundabout way.
It appears to have some conflict with other programs that uses the headset. I am not experiencing any issues with GChat or Skype (as yet).
Hope this helps.

I purchased the LifeChat LX-3000 and my laptop wasn't picking up the microphone. I was able to fix it by going to Control Panel>Hardware and Sound>Sound>Manage audio devices>Recording>Configure
After configuring, you can go to Settings>Sound>Input>Test your microphone and it should be working!
